DIY kids – Making snowman crafts…with Celeste!

Activity By langmobile

Hello hello!

My name is Celeste, and I’m a teacher here at Langmobile, with a love for all things arts and crafts. DIY kids is a blog spot featuring a monthly curated collection of the top projects loved by parents, children, and educators! Everything on the list have two things in common: They are the highest regarded in their selected categories, and they’re based on a popular theme. All of them can be used as a jumping off point to teach new vocabulary words in English! 

This month we’re DIY-ing snowman crafts!

 

Most environmentally friendly: DIY sock snowmen 

Every Friday at my house is laundry day. Each week I put the mismatched socks into the washer, looking for their pairs after every dry cycle. I never find them. In fact, the odd sock pile keeps growing with every  load! If this sounds familiar this kids craft will come in handy. I’m convinced the sock bunny is real. 

Materials needed: 

  • Socks 
  • Rice 
  • Rubber bands
  • Ribbon
  • Buttons

 

Most time efficient: DIY snowman shape matching game

This kids game is as easy as printing and cutting! It’s created to teach children about shapes, in order to build a snowman. You can also find a button counting game by the same blogger, if that suits the educational needs of your little learner better! 

Materials needed: 

  • Printer
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • *Optional* Laminator 
  • *Optional Lamination paper 

 

Most aesthetic: DIY melting snowman craft

Winters in Canada are so unpredictable! Some days are freezing and icy, and others are as warm as the springtime. This kids craft can be used to talk about the weather while creating a new piece of art, or a card for a loved one. 

Materials needed: 

  • Shaving cream 
  • Liquid white glue
  • Flour
  • A bowl
  • A spatula
  • A bag
  • Scissors
  • Paper
  • Googly eyes
  • Pom poms
  • Sequins
